Hello.  OWH is doing a 3 day card bowl during Super Bowl weekend.  The first challenge is to make a masculine card (in their themes) with the team colors from this years big game.  I used colors from the Seattle Seahawks.

Yuckiest 10 minutes

I started journaling some of the trying events I've endured as a parent.  This is one of them.

This was also a harder layout for me.  There is no picture and I tore paper.  I used DCWV card stock, Basic Grey, Fancy Pants papers and brads.

This week at HIMCR we used digital kits from Template Dreams.  I used 'Hey There.'

I fussy cut out the banner and outlined the heart.  Then I used a background to stamp the sentiment onto.

I hope you submit a project for a loved one this week.  HIMCR is giving away a Template Dreams $5 GC!

HIMCR #133 - Clean & Simple

This week at HIMCR we all received card stock from Paper Temptress.  It was gorgeous, textured and a lot of fun to use.

My layout has 6 different kinds of their paper.  There are 3 different textures.  I also used 2 punches and the Zooballoo cartridge.

This card has 3 types of their paper.  Each has a different textured finish.  I also used ink, Stampin' Up! sentiment and the Cake Seasonal cartridge.

The other card I made also has 3 different types of their paper.  I also used a ribbon, punch, Action Wobble and the Create a Critter 2 cartridge.

This card stock was great and worked well with my tools.  I hope you link a project to HIMCR this week so you can be entered to win a $25 gift card to Paper Temptress.

Scraps-to-Treasures: New Year, New You.

Today I am designing with some people at Scraps To Treasures blog.  The theme is New Years, New You.  I made this layout of our annual New Years Eve activities.

I didn't want the jounaling to really stand out, so I cut a section of the paper and flipped it.  This is the first time double sided paper has really worked in my favor.

Basic Grey paper, ribbon, Lily Bee Design alphas, ink and Stickles were used on this layout.

Have a great day!
